Wow! Stephana and I are super excited to speak at First Fridays at Eastern Star Church. Eastern Star was our very first church home as a couple! We were married while members of Eastern Star. It’s amazing to share our story with family at “home.”
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights….” You most likely have heard these words before. They are found in the Declaration of Independence of the United States of America.

It’s finally spring weather here in Indiana! If you are familiar with the weather in the midwest, especially Indiana, you can understand my excitement. We are not too surprised when winter weather is the norm even after March 21st when it’s supposed to be spring. So, when we get several days of spring-like weather we are excited.
For our family, it’s time to pull out the bikes and take some family bike rides. It’s our thing during the spring and summer. We ride around our neighborhood, pack up bikes and go to the park or even downtown Indy. I remember riding bikes during the spring and summer as kids, but it wasn’t the family bike ride like we do today. It was different then.
The other day I found myself down and back at it again—back down on the ground getting dirty digging in the soil. I couldn’t wait to get back in the garden with the coming of spring. My five-year-old son was right there with me shoveling to break up the soil. When it came time to put the lettuce and spinach seeds in the ground, my six-year-old daughter joined us.
Stephana and I are excited to be a part of the Awana Vantage Conference in Chicago. Our family has been greatly impacted by our service and participation in the Awana Clubs over the years!
For most couples, marriage is a heavy weight to manage. That’s a very bold statement, isn’t it? When you have over 50% of marriages ending in divorce, it’s safe to say that those marriages carried a weight that was difficult to manage—in most cases.
Small actions can make or break your marriage. Tiny acts of kindness are sometimes the ones that are remembered and impact your marriage most. Unfortunately, tiny acts of contempt are also long remembered, and can be powerful enough to turn a good relationship sour.
The bottom line is that when it comes to your marriage, little actions make a big difference. In fact, my marriage to Jenny started with a simple, but powerful, act of kindness.
